New York Press: The tremendous Western rainfril and the great floods have temporarly upset all business cal culations dependent upon settled weather or normal facilities of transportation in the Western States affected. It is estimated that not less than 20,000 miles of of railroad lias directly felt the effect of lie great overflow, while the indirect effect is perhaps even more considerable. There is good reason for believing, how ever, that the reports offlood damages are exaggerated. One important fact must not be lost sight of—the fact that the overflow, destructive as it is in local ties, leaves a. rich deposit of high value to farmers on all lowlands it covers. Thus while the evil effects of the flood is at once felt, the good results will make themselves apparent for some time to come. The early date of the overflow precludes the possibility of general and serious injury to the crops. Trade in the regions tributary to New Orleans, St. Louis, Kansas City, Omaha and Sioux City has been retarded where it has not been completely stopped. The check is, of course, only temporary. The subsiding of the waters will see prompt railway and highway repairs, and the volume of traffic will flow on again. The,industrial disturbances in the east, though extensive, have not largely af fected general trade as yet. It is to be hoped that a means of settlement may be found before business interests fee] the strain to which the idleness of so large an army of men must sooner or later subject them it the various strikes and lockouts continue for a considerable length of time. The predictions made last week in this column that a better de mand for iron at western centers woult soon be apparent has been fulfilled Prices are unchanged as yet. Lumber both east and west is in more active re quest. Leather prices are slightly higher. Wheat, oats and corn have advanced from 2,1-2 to 4 cents on the bushel. Wheat exports last week were 3,603,603 bushels or eleven hundred thousand bushels more than for the corresponding week last year. Prices are reported higher for print cloths. The market for cheviots and blakets is brisk, and mills are busy. Wool is firm. Raw cotton has gained one-eighth ot a cent, and the consumption of cotton goods is very large. The official statement of the imports and exports for the nine months ending March 31, 1892, sbovr the tremendous increase of $153,665,000 in breadstuff exports over the same period last year. Commercial disaster has followed the repeal of tariff laws or the radical reduction of duties in every instance in the history of this country except in 1846, at •which time we were engaged in a war with Mexico, which was followed immediately by the Crimean war, when England had most of her pauper labor enlisted as soldiers. Even then distress was only delayed. When the effects of war abroad and of the discovery of gold in California wore off, the free trade tariff of 1846 got in its work and brought on the delayed but atill inevitable panic. In 1857 the country learned that while the evil might be retarded and delayed, ultimate escape from the panic that always follows Democratic "tariff reform" was impossible. The Courier has suffered much "distress and anguish of mind" about the passage of the Hatch anti-option bill, and whether Mr. Dolliver would stand by the interests of the farmers and favor its passage. Its solicitude for the bill and how Dolliver would vote continued even after Mr. Dolliver had come out iu a letter to the Calhoun County Alliance assuring them that he would do all he could for the bill. It might interest the Courier to know that the Hatch anti- option bill was practically killed by the democrats in the house of representatives the other day. "Let us have peace," wrote General Grant, expressing a friendly feeling toward the South he had conquered, in accepting the republican nomination for the presidency. The peace he so earnestly wished for after the hard days of the war has come. The North and South are united today by ties that cannot be broken. In the long days of peace that have- followed the war, the old animosities and bitter feelings have been forgotten. At Chicago last Monday the G. A. R. Post, after decorating the graves of the Union soldiers, marched to Old Camp Douglass and decorated the graves of the comfed- erate dead. The Sioux City Journal gives good advice:—"Buy land. Buy R quarter section of northwestern land. You can hardly go amiss. Buy eighty ncres, if you can't buy more. Buy less if you can't buy so much. If you have no money, then work and suve till you have enough to buy some land. It will make you comfortable in your old age." There is no better or surer investment today than that offered by the lands of northern Iowa. Get land, and if you •would realize the quickest and best re turns upon your investment, get lands in northern Iowa. President Harrison went to Rochester Decoration day and took part in the memorial exercises. Grover Cleveland when he was president went fishing on Decoration day. The one was a general in the Union army, the other a draft evad- ding, substitute hiring lawyer in New York. Try our leas.

How do you tell when the irons are too hot?" "How?" By smelling the burning linen mum, of course, What's my nose for?" Murat Halsted thus sums up the case of Iowa's renegade republican candidate for the democratic nomination for presi dent: "The bark of the twig of his democracy, sprouting from the gnarled old trunk of his republicanism, is still green. Its freshness shows that it ueyer endured a sharp frost. It is not a decade since Governor Boies was a blooming Blaine man. His greatness has sprung from a soil fertilized for a democratic crop by the prohibitionists, and the governor knows only the political economy of free liquor and raising corn at a loss." The Courier printed a lot of stuff about binding twine a few weeks ago, to which it called the attention of the REPUBLICAN. No notice was made of the matter in last week's paper, because all spare editorial space had been used m discussing democratic tariff philosophy on the subject of woolen goods. The thing that seems to be worrying the Courier is the fact that the cordage people are making money. It is the tariff of a cent and a fraction that is making the cordage trust wealthy, according to the Courier. The Courier will remember that the McKinley bill reduced the tariff on binding twine over 50 per cent., while the Mills bill in expressing the way in which the democratic party thinks that the tariff ought to be reduced provided for an increase of the tax. The Courier pretends that the big dividends of the cordage trust are all due to the tariff on binding twine; it might go on and say with as much reason that the bi£ dividends of the Standard Oil Trust are due to the tariff on petroleum. The tariff is now so low on binding twine that it is extremely doubtful if placing it upon the free list would make it cheaper. Mr. Dolliver, whom the Courier holds responsible for the fact that twine is not on the free list, probably took the same view of the matter. From the way the Algona Courier and other democratic papers in this district hold Mr. Dolliver responsible for everything dona in Congress it would seem that he must have the whole house of representatives under his dictation.

The McKinley tariff has increased the cos* of clothing so that the people are robbed every time they buy a pair of suspenders or enough to keep a family in comfort, under free trade, for less than a year. One of our subscribers was in to see us Saturday, and had with him two bright looking boys. We noticed their suits, and asked what they cost. They were bought of M. Beehler, here in Manchester, and the entire suits, two pairs of pants, coat and hat, cost just $5.00 each. The material was good enough for anybody to wear, and the clothes were well made and a nice fit. We have a half dozen other stores that keep clothing, where no dcubt equally good bargains can be had. There was never a time when clothing was so cheap as it is to day, and all the talk of the calamity papers and speakers about high prices is the merest besh. That dog wen't fight, this year. His bark was all played out last year, and the people can no longer be deceived. J Am on Deck Again, READY FOR BUSINESS.
